Berry Street - Foster Care, Child Protection, Youth, Family Violence and Community Services

Welcome to Berry Street

Since 1877, Berry Street has chosen to work with children, young people and families, with the most challenging and complex needs, including those for whom we are often the last resort. Last year, we helped over 27,000 of the most disadvantaged children, young people and families across our community.

We believe all children should have good childhood, growing up feeling safe, nurtured and with hope for the future.
